Welcome! ~ Velkommen! Here, in my little corner of bloglandia, is my blog about my crafts. Until recentley I've blogged about my card making. Now, in 2011, I'll try to do different things also, such as sewing (patchwork), knitting, crochet, baking, along with some card making... . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . .. .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Audღ
If you like the stamps (and other fun stuff) from Susana's shop SCACD, you should know that it's closed from December 23rd thru January 1st 2010. On the 2nd you can put thingies in the carts again. You can go window shopping during the Holidays, there's just no carts to put items in.
This is my last card for 2009, I'm going to have a busy Holiday season with lots of working days, 'so is the life of a nurse'... *LOL*
I'd like to wish all of my bloggin' friends and visitors a very Merry Christmas, hope to see you all again in 2010!
I've used the cute stamp Maya's Sled by Papilio Stamps on my card, colored with Prismacolor pencils.
I hope you'll take a look at the wonderful cards made by my DT sisters over at the Friday Sketchers blog, and that you'll find inspiration to make a card and take part in the challenge, there's a great prize to win sponsored by Simon Says Stamps.
I wish you all a fabulous weekend! I'll try to finish the shopping for Christmas gifts, the days just fly by...
Hi there! A new Tuesday and a new challenge for the SCACD DT members, today we were to make a card using some kind of fancy folding! I went searching on the net and found a tutorial for this fun card, click here to see it.
On the company blog Follow Your Heart you can see all the wonderful projects by the rest of the DT ladies!

In the video tutorial she says to score at 3", but I found that the square will be slightly off center if I do that, so I scored at 3 1/4", and then it looks OK! I made a scoring template if you like to try to make this fun card. You should watch the video first, then you'll understand my template better... (Just a short note before you start, the size of the paper is 11" x 11")

On today's TIOT challenge for the SCACD DT we were to make a box of some sort to wrap a little something in. I found this great tutorial on Create Studio blog, and made some boxes. I made one following the directions, and one almost as described, only a bit smaller (took off 1 inch on all messurements.)
Then I had to try out an idea I got, I wanted to make a larger box using a Nestabilities die, label 6. I cut four half way (I just put the embossingmat under one side of the die to prevent cutting the whole label.) Then I cut two squares of green cardstock for the bottom of the box, one on the inside and one under the box, adhered the 4 sides to one square, then adhered the other square on the oposite side.
It's the first Sunday of the Advent, and I've put some lights up in our windows, here's a picture of the star in our livingroom. I took a blurry picture just to see if I was able to get this cool effect...
Now over to my card, I always look for fun ways to make use of my darling punches, so when I stumbeled over a Christmas tree card in this inspiring blog Stamp Crazy Girl, I just had to make a card right away! I even made my own dotted background paper. :o)
Welcome to a new Friday Sketchers challenge! We have such a fun sketch this week made by our wonderful Tanja, I loved making my card using this sketch!
The image is lovely Pure of Heartby Sugar Nellie, one of the three fundraiser stamps they made. I love that they did this for charity!
I colored with Prismacolor pencils, put lots of glitter on this card, but it's not easy to capture in a photo... I put pink Distress Stickles on the edge of the pink dp and then spinkled glitter on it.

I love my Whipper Snapper stamps, it's easy to see why, right? He's so cute! For this card I dug out a tool that's seldom used these days, at least by me, decorative scissors. I like the white borders they made on my card.
For this week's TIOT we are to use buttons on our cards. I love buttons, so this was right up my alley! I've used the wonderful image Cherry Blossom from the Sampler Edition #2 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD, colored with Prismacolor pencils. It's extra fun to use buttons when you have coordinated patterned papers and buttons! Here I've used a sheet from the BasicGrey Indian Summer pad, and buttons to go with it. (These buttons are now on sale in Susana's shop!) I used Scrapper's Floss on the buttons, I colored a piece of white with a green ProMarker.
I have a 'thing' with buttons, I can never put them on a card without a thread or a ribbon through them, it feels unfinished. I have the same 'thing' with flowers, I always have to embellish the center in some way. If I put a button or a flower on a card with out these additions, then there's something very wrong with me! *LOL* Do you have any 'funny obsessions' like these? I'd love to know! Oh, I have one more, I have to ink on the edge of papers and die cuts, sometimes (almost never) it looks better without the inking, but it's sooooo hard not to do it!!! *LOL* Please note, that this is how I feel about my own cards, when I see cards made by other card makers, I do not have the same feelings and thoughts. I'm weird, yes, I know...

This week we have a very inspiring sketch made by our faboulous Jeanette from Canada! I loved working with it! I've used 4 different hÄnglar stamps to mask a little scene toghether for my image. Colored with Prismacolor pencils, sponged blue distress ink to make a night sky. The sentiment is by Card Craft-UK.
Har tre sønner, bor i Trondheim,(kommer fra Brønnøysund), jeg er 49 år, og er sykepleier. Har drevet med stempelhobby i mange år, men for tiden holder jeg mer på med håndarbeid og sying. Får ikke utfoldet meg så mye som jeg skulle ønske, det er for lite tid, og så har jeg ikke hobbyrom - det står høyt på ønskelista det! :o) ~ ♡ ~ ♡ ~ ♡ ~ ♡ ~ ♡ ~ ♡ ~ ♡ ~
I have three sons, I live in Trondheim, Norway. I’m a registered nurse. I'm 49 years old. I’ve been stamping for many years, mostly I'm now knitting and sewing, but I can’t be as active as I wish, there’s too little time, and I do not have a crafting room – that’s on the top of my wish list! :o)
